I am very new to this. What is a module? Is it a course I would teach?
Hi Joe, welcome to the Canvas community. I like to think of Modules as buckets; they are something you put things into. They can be used to organize content in your course in whatever manner you feel works best. I personally am a fan of using Modules to break up content by time, so I often will have modules for Week 1, Week 2, etc. Many others might use a Unit approach with modules named Unit 1, Unit 2, etc. The idea that I use is to then put everything related to Week 1 or Unit 1 within that Modules.
Here is link to a short video (4 minutes) that is a nice overview of Modules Modules Overview (Instructors)
And here is a link to the general Canvas Guides related to modules https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-10460-canvas-instructor-guide-table-of-contents#jive_content_id_Modules
Hope this helps,
